and then it's clear to steal for the mega business. ms. mccarthy, in november president obama stated, quote, the temperature around the globe is increasing faster than was predicted even 10 years ago, closed quote. i thought that was curious because i've seen some data that indicated not, that was not true. in fact, it has been fairly flat. and certainly, so, i wrote administrator jackson and astor simply this, to provide the data according to the present assertion on with quote a chart of the actual global average temperature increases since 1979 versus the latest ipcc predictions, closed quote. and you responded to that, but they didn't respond to my question. he basically said in february of this year quote, there are multiple lines of evidence that clearly demonstrate that average global temperatures are rising, closed quote. so you didn't provide any specific data relating to the question i asked -- >> would you like me to take another shot at that? >> if i could say, i'm adding two minutes to your time so you will get seven. if senator bozeman wants 70 will get that as well. >> thank
